Next week, the NCAA Indoor National Championships will be hosted in Birmingham, Alabama. The Ducks will be in good position for the meet, qualifying 26 athletes. Oregon will send 16 women and 10 men to the championship meet.

The men are currently ranked No. 2 in the nation behind Arkansas while the women are ranked No. 1. In the men's poll, Oregon is less than half a point behind Arkansas while the women are just over a tenth of a point ahead of No. 2 Florida.

The 16 entries on the women's side for Oregon are the most in school history and the most among any school in the nation this year. Oregon's top performer going into the meet is Raevyn Rogers in the 800, who has the top time in the nation at 2:00.90. Jasmine Todd's mark of 7.20 seconds in the 60 meter dash ranks third in the NCAA, while Hannah Cunliffe is close behind at 7.21 seconds in the same event.

On the men's side, Edward Cheserek leads the way with the top time in the NCAA in the 3000 (7:40.51) and 5000 (13:35.86). Other men who have top marks in the country include Blake Haney in the mile (3:56.36) and Devon Allen in the 60 meter hurdles (7.60).

The meet will be hosted on March 11-12 and can be seen on ESPN3.
